dollar of government spending or how much of the lost dollar of taxes is spent and how quickly it's spent. giving more money to spending increases or tax cuts to lower- income people is more huge effee because they tend to spend a larger share of the difference. infrastructure spending, a lot of that gets spent, but depending on the project, it may get spent somewhat slowly. it can have a high bang for the buck ultimately but not right now. certain projects take a while to get started. infrastructure investment, if devoted to high return projects, can, in fact, have a big effect on the state of the economy. about half of nondefense discretionary spending can be viewed as investments either in physical structures or in people in the form of education and training. not all that money is spent well. but some of it is clearly spent for things that the private sector would not otherwise provide. and some of those projects can then have high rates of return and boost the economy in significant ways over time. i think the -- one concern that people have raised about the cutbacks in discretionary
